Grr... There was a minimal version of XP you could burn onto a CD and boot from. It allowed you to preform maintainence and what not. I can't remember what it's called, though. It was [something]XP.
Oh well, there's another thing similar to that called ERD Commander
. Unfortunatly, it costs money (read: a lot).
Haven't a clue about any CD version of the Microsoft boot disks.
